When I was a teen I suffered a horrible depression. I am not certain what caused it, chemical or emotional stresses… I suffered alone most of the time because back then my mother, my doctors and everyone else said I had nothing to be depressed about. I remember that feeling to this date. You know the feeling you get when you smell fresh rain … Read More Fighting Demons
So, my last post was right before COVID-19 changed how my entire family works. My husband now works from home, which limits my access to certain areas of the house since he is constantly in meetings online. My job stopped giving me hours, because I am a medical coder, and I only have work when people see their doctors. With COVID-19 the clinics and … Read More How are you affected?
Happy New Year! Yea yea, I know I am really late with this post… but I have been just taking care of myself lately. I really have not felt the need or want to blog the past few months, so I took a break from it all. So over the past few months I have seen a surgeon for a medical issue that the … Read More Long time no see !
I have been struggling to get into shape for a few years now. I have dieted. I have lost work out buddies, just due to our different life styles and jobs. It’s hard to find time with two kids, who are very different in age (toddler and pre-teen) along with my pets and my husband… to find time to work out, work, homeschool my … Read More Getting fit – together
I made the decision to start up preschool education with my daughter. Since my husband and I live in a city where the public schools are not up to my standard and we won’t be placing our youngest into daycare anytime soon (I am not against it, I just have no reason for it when I am home all the time.) I feel like … Read More Here’s whats new !
Tis’ the season… I’m not sure if I am an introvert or not. I think I just don’t like people sometimes, or maybe it’s my social anxiety. Anyways I love/hate the holidays. I love seeing people, but I get emotionally exhausted after so much interaction. I personally do enjoy family time, hanging out with friends, but I also need a break from events. I … Read More Tis the season
This is my daughter (see above photo). And we are learning what H-Pylori is first hand this week. All last month my daughter had stomach problems, and they continued through this month, so I took her into the doctor’s office, where they took me seriously thankfully, and ordered a stool sample test. Last night, I got a text from the mychart app that my … Read More H- Pylori – what the heck is it?
I have been using Lightroom for a few days now to edit my photos, since my new camera uses RAW CR3 files, and my older version of Photoshop Elements did not support that specific file, and I really don’t LOVE Lightroom yet. I find it annoying that this program slows down my computer so much, just to edit some light/colors. I am paying monthly … Read More Hello Monday
These past few days have been a bit of an eye opener for me. I felt alone and cried over some stupid things. I felt like a failure as a mother because my daughter keeps having stomach issues, but after realizing that IF she has Celiac… I am not to blame. I know people who have it and contamination happens. Today I spoke to … Read More Accidentally here – Gluten Free / Homeschool /ADHD / Food Allergies
My daughter has FPIES. And for the last few months we have gone symptom free, for the most part. We avoided trigger foods and opened up to new recipes and were able to introduce home made and store bought paleo pizza, muffins, and crackers (all wheat, oat and rice free), to Lillian. Today I sit here in my living room with a head ache. … Read More Being a mother to a child with food allergies… or possibly Celiac
Last week, my husband bought me the new Canon 90D DSLR. I am very excited to try this camera out – but I also ran into some difficulties involving the RAW format CR3 files. First of all – the CR3 files can no longer be “previewed” in my Windows 10 file browser, and my Photoshop Elements 10, cannot open my RAW format files. I … Read More Fall is here! (Oh & I got the new Canon 90D)
